The location of this property could not be better! This is a clean, beautiful house with a well-stocked kitchen and beautifully decorated. As it is stated in other reviews, this house is not noise-friendly. However, we had 5 teenagers in our group and managed quite well. We would definitely stay in this house again. Loved our stay!!!
Stay for Fall Break
We stayed for fall break and really enjoyed the cottage. It’s conveniently located within a short walk to the beach, pool, and Seaside’s town green with lots of shopping and restaurants. Parking and check-in were easy! The 2 complimentary bikes were useful when you didn’t want to drive. Kitchen was well-stocked. I agree with other reviews that if you’re sensitive to noise, this may not be the best option. The floor plan is nice and open, but it means you’ll hear even the quietest noises. The outdoor porches and rooftop overlook for watching the sunsets were our favorite!
Great house if you don’t intend to sleep there
Location is great, quick walk to beach. Now that I have covered the good parts, let me describe why you should not ever rent here if you have small kids or like to sleep. It is NOT a three bedroom house. It is a one bedroom without a door and two lofted areas with no walls separating the den. So, any noise echoes throughout the house. There is not a single window treatment in the house to obscure the 5:30 sunrise. We have been coming to seaside for over a decade and would warn anyone about this house.
Thank you for your comments. While our Serendipity cottage may not be for everyone, it is indicative of the custom charm of traditional Seaside cottages. You are correct that the guest bedrooms have custom bi-fold doors that overlook the downstairs, but they do provide privacy and noise obstruction and each does have a normal doorway into them. The third level was designed to be a private master retreat with stairway leading to private landing with oversized chairs perfect for snuggling up with a good book. Up a couple steps is the master retreat bedroom. We will certainly take you up on your blind suggestions and add some additional window coverings. Beyond that, Serendipity offers a peaceful beach retreat with lots of unique architectural details to the house and many that have stayed here love these and other great qualities of Serendipity.
March 2016 Stay
We have had a blast! This adorable cottage is perfect for our family of six. It is ideally located for all the amenities as well. We loved watching beautiful sunsets and shooting stars from the deck.
Most for your $$!
Our family of 6 (with 4 kids ages 10-24) loved our 1st vacay in Seaside at the Serendipity house! So ez on my budget that we were able to afford beach chair rentals, bikes and ice cream every night. A few (very minor) improvements could make it better, but they wouldn't stop us from going back. The window seat was so big that our 10 year old slept there all week (but we'll bring a set of twin sheets next time). My husband and kids fussed the first day about no tv in the bedrooms (of course, I knew about this when I booked), but this mama loved it bc it got everyone in one room! A couple of full length mirrors would've helped out with 3 girls but guess what? We survived! If I could make one change it would be to add a couple of small bedside tables with some hotel style reading lamps (the ones with outlets at the base) in the master. There wasn't a grill, so darn, we had to go to town (literally 2 min walk) to eat at Great Southern again! The 2 swings on the front porch were my favorite part and a corner lot was a bonus. The house is the perfect location between the beach, town and the West end family pool!
